Meet Elizabeth Krear:
Ram Truck’s Chief Engineer

Chief Engineer of the Ram 1500, Elizabeth Krear is someone you’d want to have as a friend. I interviewed Elizabeth — a perky, petite, fun, and intelligent woman — during the Texas Truck Rodeo.

As a woman I sometimes find it difficult to interview male engineers: They don’t get my sense of humor and they talk in engineering terms that are way above my head. Not so with Elizabeth: We bonded right away over kids, kitchens, and our mutual love of trucks.
Elizabeth oversees all budgets, planning, engineering, development, quality, and launch management of the Ram 1500. With more than 25 years in the automotive industry, she received two Master’s degrees while working full-time and raising two kids with her husband, Tad.
Following are excerpts from my interview with the engineer:
Holly Reich: Whenever I see a Ram, I think, “If the Ram were a man, who would he be?” It’s such a deliciously macho truck.
Elizabeth Krear: Haha! The Ram is so many things, no one man could cut it.
